It’s fellowship season again, a time when legions of aspiring TV Writers battle for a coveted spot in the Writer’s Rooms of ABC, NBC, CBS, and Fox on the hottest new shows. Unfortunately the process is grueling (application, resume, personal statement, spec and original material samples, references, multiple elimination rounds, and endless interviews) and only a fraction of a percent are selected. What you need is your own personal Yoda to help you train. In this five-week Los Angeles TV Drama Writers Fellowship Bootcamp, Davy Perez (2014 ABC Fellow, AMERICAN CRIME) takes you through the process, honing your spec through table reads, finding your compelling personal story, and prepping you for the most grueling interviews of your life. ABC Fellowship Manager Emerlynn Lampitoc will be visiting the class to explain the rigorous selection process, offer insight, and discuss success strategies and common pitfalls. By the end of the class, you will be ready to present the best you to the selection committee and break through the sound barrier. Fellowship spot not included.
